If your order is returned for whatever reason, we will be pleased to arrange for its re-processing, packaging and posting upon receipt of the Post Office re-delivery charge from you.

COURIER DELIVERIES generally take between 4-7 days from despatch but will be subject to the receiving country’s customs clearance/local delivery methods and timings, etc. over which Futera has no control and Futera cannot be responsible for the loss or damage of any package whilst in the possession of a Courier/Shipper.

Terms & Conditions relating to Card Insert Ratios and our Terms of Sale: Insert ratios stated are averages across an entire production run. As such, they give an AVERAGE of the quantities of different types of cards inserted across the entire manufacturing and packing processes and as such no particular card can be guaranteed to exist in any particular pack/box/minicase/case. Futera Collections involve many complicated procedures and processes and more of one type of insert card and less or none of others, and less or none of some and more of others may feed through the various processes into a pack/box/case. Insert ratios therefore give a ‘likelihood’ based on the number of inserts averaged over a Collection.
Before purchasing please be sure you understand the above and that we hereby cannot accept claims for any pack, box, minicase or case which does not contain a particular card mix, e.g. if a case mix has less than expected or none of a particular type of card this is not deemed as a shortfall, and no claim can be made. Replacement or additional cards cannot be provided in relation to any mix found in any particular box/case purchase. However, across the production run the ratios stated give a guidance of the likelihood of finding the range of cards subject to the above.
DISTRIBUTORS/DEALERS: Terms relating to your Purchase from us If you are a Distributor/Dealer please make sure that your customers understand about the packing ratios. Please also advise them not to disclose their card codes (particularly if showing a photograph of their card back when trading online such as on eBay, etc.). Dealers may not use their dealer allocations of bonus cardsfor their own advantage. Bonus Cards/FuteraVcard/Tokens benefits are for Dealers to award and pass on to their customers with purchases.
Manager and Stadium FuteraVcards are ‘virtual cards’ and are not available in Packs.
Online Shop Offers, Facebook and other Offers through the Futera network are not associated with, and will not necessarily be the same as, card/FuteraVcard allocations and/or Offers available from other sources.
Futera Tokens hold no monetary value and can not be transferred or traded for cash.

NOTICE TO SELLERS:
PLEASE KEEP YOUR CODE CONFIDENTIAL – REMEMBER TO HIDE YOUR CARD’S CODE IF SHOWING A PHOTOGRAPH OF YOUR CARD.

Once you have arranged the de-registration of a uniquely coded Card/FuteraVcard, a period of 7 days must pass after the de-registration date before your Buyer can use that card/FuteraVcard. As the last person to have used and/or claimed ownership of the Card and/or Code, you as the Seller are responsible for keeping that code confidential, and ensuring that your Buyer has been able to register the card/code to complete your trade to the Buyer’s satisfaction. You may not trade a card/code that you are not the rightful owner of from commencement through to completion of your transaction with a buyer.

As such a situation would have arisen as a result of your own actions, Futera is not able to provide replacement codes in that event or become involved with claims from any of the parties involved. Please be very careful to keep unique codes of all your cards and FuteraVcards confidential at all times and particularly before, during and after a trade as the consequences of any unfair practices along the trading chain may affect you.

Entrants found to have won, or be attempting to win or play by dishonest or unfair means may be disqualified, and where appropriate their cards removed from their FWF ONLINE account until further notice and any prize forfeited, and be subject to other penalty action by the Development Team at their discretion including being requested to return a prize which has been deemed to have been won by unfair means.
The submission of an entry shall be deemed to indicate acceptance of these Terms and all rules set out herein and as per Terms & Conditions provided in relation to a particular Offer/Competition/Draw, etc. Participation in Trials/Tournaments/Competitions/other activities via the Futera Network, unless stated otherwise, are international and open to residents of all countries subject to relevant Registration terms & conditions applying at the time of participation. Participation in a national-specific competition if stated is solely restricted to residents of that country, with prize delivery only to a prizewinner’s own addresses in the country stated. Competitions, Tournaments and/or other events which offer a ‘prize’ or reward are not open to employees or members of their immediate families, participating clients or anyone connected with the promotion of the competition or event and in any event the decision of the company shall be final and legally binding.
The winner(s) will be selected by our Random Number Generator software once all entries for the competition have been entered.
The probability of winning a prize can differ dramatically depending on how many people enter a particular prize draw. Each entry is equivalent to 1 chance at winning, and so the probability of winning a prize draw (assuming only 1 prize is being offered) will be 1 divided by the number of entries sold and distributed for that particular prize draw. For example, if there are 100 entries sold and distributed for a particular prize draw, each entry has a 1 in 100 chance of winning.
If the Prize Draw Terms allow multiple entries then your chances of winning increase.
If the Terms state that there is a limit of 1 prize per individual/team/household then, although your chances of winning a prize increase with multiple entries, you would not be able to win more than 1 prize if more than one of your entries is drawn - i.e. in the event that the same winner is drawn more than once in the same Prize Draw, the relevant draw will be re-performed, more than once if necessary, in order that that draw’s prize is awarded to a different winner.
Futera reserve the right to substitute a prize of a similar value in the event the original prize offered is not available due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
Futera reserve the right to amend or withdraw a Prize Draw, Competition or other Offer in whole or in part, temporarily or permanently, without prior notice or compensation.
Our competitions and/or prize-winning activities are intended to be fun and entertaining. Entering or participating in a competition does not create an enforceable contract and does not entitle the participant to enforce any claim against the Company. Unless otherwise stated, no purchase or payment is required. Entries must be received by before the stated closing date and /or time and subject to the absolute discretion of the Company, late entries will not be considered. Where the result may be a Draw, there may be a tie-breaker question, or a penalty shoot-out, or other appropriate method used to identify a clear winner as appropriate to the Competition type. However, the selection of a winning entrant will be at the Company’s sole discretion. No communication regarding results will be entered into.
Whilst every care will be taken, the Company cannot be held responsible for the non-delivery, delay or loss of any entry. Proof of posting, texting or emailing is not accepted as proof of delivery. The decision of the Company as to acceptance of any entry shall be final. All entries become the property of the Company and unless otherwise agreed, cannot be returned. Entrants agree to their name, team name, home-town and country being published on the website(s) and elsewhere. They agree to their participation details being published, broadcast and otherwise used without entitlement to any payment. Subject to the Company deciding otherwise only the stated prize(s) may be won. Prize values may be set by the supplier of the prize and not by The Company. Prize values are approximate at time of competition and may be subject to change. No cash alternative is available for non-cash prizes. In the event of the stated prize becoming unavailable the Company will, where appropriate, arrange the supply of an appropriate alternative or remedy at the Company’s sole discretion. In the event that there is more than one entry qualifying as a prospective winner of a prize which is by its nature divisible the prize may be shared, at the discretion of the Company. In the event of there being more than one prospective winner of a prize that is not by its nature divisible, the decision of the Company as to the ultimate winner, and the prize/award to be given, shall be final.
A prize will not be awarded to a person who, for any reason, would not be allowed by law to purchase or use the prize or where the supply to that person would otherwise be unlawful. Age limits may apply to certain prizes. Entrants outside such limits will be disqualified. For certain prizes, winners under 18 years of age must be accompanied on a journey or holiday or to an event by a parent or guardian or other responsible adult. The company notifies winners of competitions/tournaments/trials/other events by email and/or online announcement normally within 30 days of closing date and, where appropriate, will contact winners by email to make arrangements for the delivery of a prize. Such notification not acknowledged or responded to by a winner within 10 days of the first notification will result in their prize remaining the property of the Company to do with as it sees fit. Following receipt of a winner’s delivery address details, the Company would normally despatch the prize within 28 days. This would be subject to the availability of the prize which may be delayed in transit to the Company or not become available for despatch to the winner within the scheduled timeframe due to unforeseen circumstances. In such circumstances a period of up to 90 days should be allowed before an alternative is considered or as otherwise mutually agreed by Futera and the winner.
Subject to the discretion of the Company, the names of (major) prize winners will be made available within 30 days following the closing date by publication on the appropriate website(s). The decision of the Company is final. No correspondence will be entered into concerning the Company’s decisions. The Company reserves the right to reject claims or applications and to alter, amend or foreclose the promotion without prior notice. While the Company will use its best endeavours to ensure that prizes are received by the actual winner they shall not be responsible for any failure to do so. The Promoters are not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information, caused by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilised in any activity, trial, tournament or competition, or by any technical error that may occur in the course of the administration of such. The Promoters assume no responsibility for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorised access to or alteration of entries. If for any reason the activity, trial, tournament or competition becomes incapable of running as planned, including but not limited to technical failures, or reasons beyond the control of the Promoters which affect the administration, security, fairness, or proper conduct of this promotion, the Promoters reserve the right in their sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify, re-run or suspend the competition.
Prizes will only be sent to the registered address of the Prizewinner which has been registered on his/her FWF Online account at the time of entry (1 account only per person is valid for prize claims).
Please make sure you provide your full correct name, email address, country of play and other details when registering your account. If more than one account is identified for the same customer, a prize award may be deemed invalid. Please remember that registering under false names/team names may mean that you miss out on a win if we are unable to contact you through the registered details provided or if you do not respond from those registered details in order to provide delivery details or other claim confirmation. If we do not receive a response within 10 days from the date of our prize notification email, the prize will be forfeited and remain the property of the Company.
CARDS: Due to the individual hand-crafting and various finishing processes of Insert Cards slight imperfections in the print, foil or crafting processes may occur and are part of the character of the card.
Some autograph cards may feature marks incurred through the signing process such as pen or finger marks. Cards are signed where and how the player wants to sign including in different areas of the cards and sometimes with a full as well as an abbreviated style.
Occasionally a card may be damaged during transportation and/or handling and no claims can be made for such damage.
In the event of an obvious card production process fault you may notify Futera who may at their discretion seek to obtain a replacement card. However, as cards are generally packed at the time of production a replacement of a particular card type or player card may not be possible and if any alternative is offered it would be as a gesture of goodwill. Please note that there is no guarantee that if a card is offered to you that it would be of an equal or similar value and any gesture offered due to any card anomaly would be made as goodwill on the part of Futera and no negotiation is possible.
If your card starts to become damaged by handling over time, you are advised to place it in a protective card sleeve. This will protect the numbering/coding of your card. No claim can be made for replacement cards and/or codes or card numbers where card handling may have resulted in an unreadable or missing number or code.
World Football Online League Position and Fair Play Regulations (to be read in conjunction and in accordance with the above Competition Terms & Conditions and Rules to which this also forms part):
Participation instructions form part of these rules. All entrants/players must agree to abide by these rules.
Multiple entries/registrations from one person, whether registered under the same or a different name, are prohibited. As for the ruling for Competitions, Tournaments Games and/or other events, participation in the World Football Online Game is limited to one entry/registration per person. Futera holds the right to suspend or delete multiple entries with consequent loss of card functionality. Entrants found to have won, or be attempting to win or play by dishonest or unfair means may be disqualified, their cards removed from the Game until further notice and any prize forfeited, and be subject to other penalty action by the Development Team at their discretion including being requested to return a prize which has been deemed to have been won by unfair means.
A Team’s position in a league table is dictated by the number of it points it has gained in any given week. The more points the Team has gained the higher up the table that Team will be. If points between 2 or more teams are tied, then the team with the better goal difference (goals scored minus goals conceded) will be higher up the table. If this is still the same then the result is worked out on who has scored the most goals. In the unlikely case of this still being the same then the placing is worked out by the which team is higher in the Futera All-Time Table (this is manually corrected by the FUTERA DEVELOPMENT TEAM). The decision of the Company is final. No correspondence will be entered into concerning the Company’s decisions.
In the event of any player/entrant/user of the Futera network/website(s)/World Football Online taking action which could cause an irregularity or failure of the service(s) provided, their IP address will be tracked, blocked and registered, their account banned, card functionality suspended and may have their details passed to the appropriate Authorities.
